East Orlando Teen Missing – Mother Needs Our Help


    By Jacob Engels



    An East Orlando mother is still looking for her daughter, who went missing in the Timber Springs community near Avalon Park on Monday February 4th. A message from the mother is below and any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.




    Message from Nicole Gutierrez, mother of Lauren Gutierrez –



    Lauren Gutierrez was last seen in the East Orlando area, specifically Cedar Run Dr. in Timber Springs on Monday.  She took most of her clothing, shoes, and jewelry, leading me to believe she had a ride.There has been no cell phone activity since 7:40pm on Monday to a friend in the Tampa area. We believe she is in the Tampa area as she spent the last 2 years at a girls program in Lithia, Fl (Steppin’ Stone Farm) and has many contacts outside of that immediate area.



    I did receive an anonymous call at 11:16pm last night from a girl that said she knows Lauren is in Brandon, and was possibly at a hookah lounge last night, but was unable to provide any further information, other than Lauren was safe. Lauren is 5’4″ and 130 lbs. with blue eyes, brown hair. She wears glasses or contacts.



    Her safety is my utmost concern, not what she’s been doing, who she’s with, or anything else. Please let me know if you need any other information. My cell phone number is 407-579-0633 and my email is ngutierrez407@gmail.com. I am on my way to Brandon and will answer at any time.
